Soy-Free fish and chips were a solid choice for two of us. Wifey likes the lobster roll. Kid liked the Tuna salad. Great views on the deck, just watch out for the gulls or they will steal your lunch.

On a sunny day, breakfast at the Aquinnah is one of life's great pleasures. The food is good -- try the blue flour pancakes or waffles -- but it's the view that overwhelms.

I'm pretty sure it is. You may want to give them a call (508) 645.3867 before heading over. If closed There's a good take out place across from the entry. I'd go just for the view. :)

Our restaurant was founded at the beginning of World War II by Napolean Madison, the Wampanoag tribal medicine man, and whaler. Presently it is owned by Napoleans son Luther, his wife Anne, and her son Cully. Much of the fish that we use is cought by Wampanoag people from the surrounding waters.
